Yeah, don't get me wrong, I would love a K-something (Hoover's squeezed K24 is AMAZEBALLS!). Just not in a car that looks like the Italian flag. A hot-rod is a hot-rod, modded with a foreign engine or not. Any way to get more power is great, but learning to drive well is the key to actually being faster. I was at an autocross at the old Candlestick 20 years ago, when I heard a national champion comment on a driver who really looked like he was tearing it up. He said to his driving buddy, "He'd be so much faster if he just slowed down and drove the car." Confirmed all the training and wisdom that had been thrown at me over the years. That being said, our cars driven well are a very simple, inexpensive joy. More power is nice, we'd all like a bit more, but I still grin like a mad man behind the wheel of a '74 stocker. An extra 150hp would not change that feeling. I would just make it a different experience in a wholly different platform.
